Taking the Coaching Approach 2021 Repeat Course

August 6 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

 About the course 

The ‘Taking a coaching approach’ workshop offers an additional developmental tool for those who work directly with people that is built on a style of communication and motivation aimed at unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their performance. Rather than ‘telling, directing and instructing’ the coaching approach aims at developing internal or self-motivation – aiming at the ‘inner person’ rather than external motivators. It is aimed at helping a person learn rather than teaching them. 

The aim of the workshop is to provide coaching principles and processes and practice sessions to consolidate within people helpers a methodology that taps into the potential that exists within the client or patient. The methodology focuses on questions that raise awareness (what is happening around the client or patient; raise self-awareness (what they are experiencing personally) and to raise responsibility (take responsibility for their actions and increasing ownership and accountability).
